OROVILLE, Calif. -- Several members of the Oroville City Council made it clear the tension amongst its own members is far from over.

In a special meeting Friday morning, the council rescinded a July 10th censure of Mayor Linda Dahlmeier, only to replace it with a new one.

This, after an Oroville resident challenged the legality of the initial censure of July 10th, saying the Brown Act was violated.

"I think that Mayor Dahlmeier has done a great job of accepting this and attempting to move the council forward. And now I hope questions of procedures have been answered so we can move forward," said Bill LaGrone, Assistant City Administrator, City of Oroville.

On July 10th in a vote of 5 to 1, the members accused Mayor Dahlmeier of creating a hostile work environment in public meetings and with staff members.

The censure basically amounts to a reprimand. Dahlmeier will continue in her position as mayor.
